    Flight from my country to Ho Chi Minh City has better price so I chose to had a short trip here. The city is formerly known as Saigon. Now it is very developing. The nearby Mekong Delta region has different countryside vibe. The locals engage in trade and transfer on small, slender boats. The atmosphere in this area is green and refreshing.

    After reaching out to Eviva through email, I promptly received a reply and a WhatsApp connection invitation. Nhung is a senior travel consultant, she demonstrated a high level of responsibility and experience in our interactions. I look forward to visiting Vietnam again to explore more destinations in the North and Central regions.

    Ho Chi Minh City is a hub. I explored and visited many places by motorbike. It was very fun with my guide Tom. The boat trip in My Tho was peaceful and relaxing. And Can Tho was a lively local trading destination on water. I recommend you to try this tour if you have 5 days free.
